Okay, so I found this article* and it tells me that for a low-tech, low-light tank to dose with Kno3 and Kh2Po4. Now, I have the doseage and blah blah, but what should I be testing for Specifically besides the basic:Ammonia, Nitrates/trites, Hardness, PH, etc.

Is there a test kit that has everything for the planted aquarist? You know, like the Marine kits, and Freshwater Kits?

if your tank is low tech, i wouldn't worry too much about the testing aspect. but... if your just interested in in seeing what your parameters actually are, i'd just pick up an api freshwater master kit(ph high/low, nitrate, nitrite and ammonia) + the gh/kh kit.

This is what I test when starting a new tank
